Another Andromeda Galaxy (M31). Shot with my T1i and Canon 85mm f/1.8. 60 exposures of 30 sec each at f/5.6, stacked with Deep Sky Stacker and moderately cropped (to 1800x1200), then resized to posting size.

So is that the UFO's road is so bumpy or you just captured two drunk UFO align drivers??

Really good question, and I don't know the answer. They're definitely not in all of my subs, and I don't feel like looking through all of them to see how many they are in. So I'm going to speculate that those are interstellar inch worms, and leave it at that. :-D

inch worms not to scale

1inch = 75 light years!

Maybe they're Starseeds?

Actually, after I went back and looked at my original stack output, they're hot pixels that weren't recognized as such by DSS. The brighter one to the lower right is a green pixel, and the one on the upper left is red. I'm not sure why the wobble, but it might be that I have a lot of periodic error in my mount.

Not in this thread. My Andromeda Galaxy shot just a few posts back was with my Canon 85/1.8 on my T1i.

Partial solar eclipse taken with Canon 500L and 1D Mark IV. Prefocused on small horizon clouds just before sunrise to avoid looking into the viewfinder.
